…spontaneity, freedom, knowledge, inspiration, self-discovery, fun, collaboration, flow, expression, listening, breathing, entertaining, freeing, motivating, exploring… …Just a few words from our participants that describe our sessions.
Do you love to sing but feel uncertain about your vocal abilities? or Are you a professional singer who yearns to explore the possibilities of human voice? …Then this project is for YOU.
Vocal Improvisation is valuable whether you are a professional singer yearning to deepen your creative intuition or you are someone who is longing to bring out the inner singer that lives inside you.
What to expect? We start with a body & breath & voice warm-up; follow up by an exploration of vocal techniques and a basic improvisation vocabulary.

No previous experience is required at all.
